    Hello I have a slight hardware problem and I am hoping someone can help me out. All my lighting to date have been controlled with the Renard protocol and running Vixen software, upgraded to 3 for this years show. I want to add some full colour panels to my show, these are the ones I am using.

    Now my problem, does anyone have and idea of which controller I should use coming off my Ethernet card running E1.31. I have a Renard 6 port bridge if required, my stumbling block is the 16 pin connector at the back of the panels. I emailed Ron P at Ron's Holiday Lights about his controllers but has not responded, he may just be a busy man. So if any can lead me in the right direction I would appreciate it.

    Thank you for the quick responses, one thing I forgot is that I was hoping to use the panels with a number of Nutcracker effects. I don't know if this makes it easier or harder.


    Thank you again

    Nutcracker will make it easier, especially to do complex designs.

    If you use the panels that you described in the first post then I doubt you will be able to use nutcracker
